Project MUSE and Portico Partner to Preserve UPCC Ebooks

Portico and Project MUSE announced that they are partnering to secure the long-term preservation of ebooks published online in MUSE through the University Press Content Consortium (UPCC). Working together, Project MUSE and Portico will ensure that the ebook offerings of the UPCC—73 presses and more than 15,000 books at the time of signing—will remain available for future scholars, researchers, and students.

“Partnering with Portico will make it possible for Project MUSE to future-proof the book content entrusted to us by the members of the UPCC community,” according to Terry Ehling, associate director of Project MUSE. “The archiving and preservation of our book content is a priority for us, and we look forward to working closely with Portico to ensure that the UPCC title collections are available to scholars in perpetuity.”

The UPCC book collections allow thousands of peer-reviewed new and backlist ebooks to be discovered and searched in an integrated environment with content from nearly 500 journals currently on the Project MUSE platform. The book collections’ inclusion in the Portico archive strengthens a growing ebook preservation service currently responsible for the long-term preservation of more than 150,000 ebooks from a spectrum of publishers, including university presses, societies, and commercial publishers.
